The students offer a slightly different perspective.
"Why are people protesting?" "What are people so afraid of?" "Is this normal?" "What is going to happen?" "Will everything be ok?"
Talking politics with kids is challenging and rewarding. Being truly vulnerable with your students and sharing a little honesty with them around your hopes, dreams, and fears can go a long way. You can explain what the protesters are feeling. That is important. Understanding each other is an important step in creating a unified country. We need that now more than ever.
What am I worried about? The future of education. I'm worried about our students. That's why I pay attention and stay active. Local engagement is going to continue to become more important going forward. Let's get involved and stay involved.
